I am often asked about the name of our church. Questions about “hills” and “snow” in Oklahoma raise realistic questions as to the origin of the name, “Snow Hill.” We may get a couple of snows a winter and only occasionally more than an inch. We have some small “mountains” in Oklahoma but nothing when compared to the Rockies.
Our church does sit on what is considered a “hill” in northeast Grady County. So, early this morning when it began to sleet and drop freezing rain – yes, our meteorologists here in OK distinguish between the two – we knew we might have to cancel services. By 7:00 a.m. our parking lot was glazed and sand trucks were working the highway. We value our opportunities for corporate worship but thought safety the better judgment this morning.
We will look forward to next week.
